Hi Hi ..... Boy, was it a treat for me yesterday, my two favorite Korean men were present under the same roof! How I wish I could be there to cheer for both of them!
Our handsome prince is appointed as the new Ambassador of Tourism 2010-2012. Isn't he the most dashing ambassador ever?
Ryu Si Won is the ambassador from 2006-2009, he received the Presidential Commendation award yesterday.
No, you two don't have to look over there anymore, I told you I can't make it in such a short notice! (hehe)
Now, certain media decided to put the same pose of the 2 of them side by side......
Ahhh well actually, I like Ryu Si Won's character in his drama 'Wedding'. He is spending most of his time in Japan now focusing on his singing career. NowUmmm hmmmm, I am sorry I play favourites here .... but my eyes are only starring at that most handsome Yong Joon ssi! Am I too sensitive, I haven't seen the 2 men interacted at all - nod, smile, shake hands? Eye contact? No?
Now seriously, a recent report has shown that in 2007, Korea has a disproportionately lower tourist growth (4.8%) than its Asian counterparts (10.4%). The Tourism industry is obviously hoping to use Yong Joon's international fame to draw in as many as 10 million tourists beginning with its 2010 campaign. Now, that's quite a tall order. Looks like Yong Joon's 'Beauty of Korea' photo guide book and Keyeast-MOU online travel partnership are all fitting very nicely into the grand scheme, eh? Well, we already know this man can work miracles that nobody else can. We know Yong Joon's family has always been very supportive of his endeavours. So dear sisters, save your travelling to Korea till 2010, ok? And don't forget to bring (or drag) your family, friends of friends, neighbours of neghbours, cousins of cousins too :) We have to support our handsome prince, right?
Thanks to liezle and many kind sisters for posting these pictures in soompi
